WALKING IN CLOUDS

Sky Mirror at Sasaran Beach

Hidden in the depths of Kuala Selangor, magic happens at low tide. A mirage bewitches the Sasaran Beach, a stunning reflection that is not unlike the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia. The hidden island is submerged in water for most of the year and gently makes itself known on rare occasions. This spot is surrounded by an air of mystery—you won’t spot it on any GPS or world map. Low tide unveils a magnificent salt flat that is the size of a hundred football fields, a vast landscape of pearly white sand. Rich with marine life, you may spot tiny crustaceans, sea anemones, and shells. Ever wanted to touch the clouds? This is the perfect chance to take a stroll in the sky while taking pictures. For a day’s trip, one may visit the quaint fishing village just nearby. Bask in the endless stretches of paddy fields and fresh seafood in Sekinchan, a tranquil, slow paced world. You may even glimpse the night’s enchantments on a firefly cruise in the nearby Sungai Selangor. Answer Mother Nature’s call in this charming escape, a treat for those who wish to enjoy an extraordinary natural phenomenon.
